Aaron Sorkin, screenwriter for the Facebook-inspired The Social Network, is working on an adaptation of the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. To help him in this quest, Sorkin has hired Steve Wozniak as a technical advisor, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune. Woz will help Sorkin accurately represent Jobs personality and show the technology that drove Steve Jobs’s life.
Sorkin said he wants to focus on a controversial or difficult time in Jobs’s life and won’t do a full-life story. He’s been busy working on another project and hasn’t decided what part of Jobs’s life he will cover. Work on the screenplay will begin in earnest over the summer.
